FS - 1984 MB 500 SEC Euro

We've decided to sell our 500 SEC. It needs a fair amount of work, so I don't know if it is better to rebuild or as parts. I didn't realize we can't link to another ad. It is on our local Craigslist, and Photobucket is down right now, so I can't upload pictures.

Here is the text from the CL ad.

"For sale is a 1984 Mercedes Benz 500 SEC Euro model. I was told this is a grey market non-US model, but I do not know how to verify that. I do know after speaking with several Mercedes enthusiasts that the Euro 500 engine is actually more desired and preferred from a performance standpoint than the 560 US car, and obviously the 500 US car. As for the car in question, the body has rust in several areas. It needs decent work. It is fixable, but it is beyond my ability. The interior is poor to average at best. The car does not run. I had a mechanic check it, and he stated that the fuel pump has to be replaced. Currently the fuel pump, filter, etc. are removed. Also, the injection mainfold (spider manifold) is removed because we were trying to get all the old fuel out of the system. The fuel tank is drained and disconnected. I put a new battery in within the last few years to test the car. The passenger front turn lamp is broken at a tab. Otherwise, I do not know much more about the car.

I don't know if this car is worth more as parts or is a restoration candidate. I have considered scrapping the car, but there are many parts on it that are worth much more to the right person. You be the judge. You are welcome to inspect it, Contact me if you would like to set up a time/date to do so. Also, if you have any specific questions or need to see particular pictures, let me know and I will try to help as much as possible. If you need codes, tell me where to look, and I will forward them to you with pictures if possible. This vehicle will have to be towed. I will help as much as possible with loading."

We're asking $1000, but that price is negotiable. I honestly don't know what it's worth. The 500 is in Malvern, PA 19355. Email me with any questions at geardog1@comcast.net .

If the vin starts with WDB126 it's euro or not US anyway. US vins start WDBC IIRC.
